Farthest to the North is Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, which is a 14-hour drive from Manila. While on the road, you can make a stopover to go sightseeing and have photo ops at the Bangui Windmills, Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, and Cape Bojeador in Burgos, Ilocos Norte.
Zigzag roads going to Pagudpud give you a view of the crystal-blue waters of the West Philippine Sea. A swim at the white-sand beaches of Saud Beach and Blue Lagoon, which has a more scenic view, is the perfect way to cap off your experience up north.

There you have it! But some final things to remember: When traveling in a private vehicle, know your route beforehand so you don’t waste time finding your location while on the road. While taking public transportation is always an option, it is best to check on bus schedules and fares ahead of time. Plan your budget wisely, as some of these places are actually very budget-friendly if you know how and where to spend. Finally, put safety first whether you are traveling with a group or going solo.
So what are you waiting for? Go pack your bags, plan your itinerary, and satisfy your wanderlust in a fun and exciting road trip to the North.
Stay safe as you travel! Make sure to follow social distancing protocols and travel guidelines of your destination, and observe health precautions wherever you go. Have a great trip!
